Forgotten
27 January 2020 | by ThomasDrufkeSee all my reviews

One of the forgotten awards-contender films of 2019 was Clemency. A psychological thriller-drama about a Death Row prison Warden trying to stay level-headed in an increasingly grueling workspace, Clemency is a feast for the brain if nothing else. A film that further bolsters Alfre Woodard as one of the most underrated actresses of her time. And keep an eye out for Aldis Hodge, he gives a phenomenally understated performance here.
